Ghostface from the Scream francise doesn’t write too many letters of recommendation, what with having to stab teenagers all day. However, he took some time to write one for Scream 4‘s Nico Tortorella, who’s now in consideration for a major role in Stephen Sommers‘ adaptation of novelist Dean Koontz‘ Odd Thomas. When you’ve got Ghostface on your side, the world is your oyster.
Tortorella is up for the lead villain: a shady, Satan-worshipping cop working under Willem DaFoe‘s local police chief. Has there been a satanic police procedural yet? Maybe there’s one in development at USA. Anyway, for those of you not currently in the Koontz Klub, Odd Thomas is about a clarvoyant, small town cook named Odd (Anton Yelchin has been cast), his girlfriend (Addison Timlin) and their wacky adventures trying to sav the town from evil spirits.
Odd Thomas is looking to begin production in New Mexico later this year. (Hollywood Reporter)
